[BEIGE BUILD] Darked E7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN smile.gif

My name is Yasir Jamal im from Pakistan and this is the first time I’m going to mod a case, I hope I won’t disappoint you as a newbie,
The reason I choose this old piece of trash is because it was my first pc back in 2005 and was my first crush so I can’t stop loving it since now although it’s not in a good condition but I’ll definitely try to do some modding.rolleyes.gif

I’ve joined OCN couple of years ago and ever since I used to watch all those fabulous builds that are way too awesome then awesome , and then I found something named as “Beige Modding” first two paragraphs just pushed my enthusiasm to what I love and here I am doing it .

Concept
I thought would it be possible to install 12 x 120mm fans in a case where used to use only 2 x 80mm fans also keeping the noise level low. I have something in mind I hope it work that way.
PSU mounted to bottom
New Motherboard tray
Couple of holes for cable management
Paint it to white and Black.

Hardware
I can’t afford to have expensive hardware and what I have is enough for my needs. Anyways here is the list.
Asus P7P55D
Core i3 – Oced to 4.2Ghz
2 x 2GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600Mhz
Hyper 212 Plus
GPU : 5770 , 6870 and 6950
14 x Xigmatic XLF 1254 120mm Fans.
Corsair CX 430Watt

And this is the bad boy




The idea is to put all of them into the case wink.gifbiggrin.gif



Lets tear it apart


That's the original motherboard tray.


And drive bays , seperated from the case, i dont think so i would use them later on so..



I dont have a dremel with me right now so cutting it with a bent nail rolleyes.gif



If in case i need some metal sheet i would be using them lol .smile.gif




Creating a draft for the back i/o plate . I actually planning to put my drives on the back side of the motherboard tray so adjusting the i/o plate also my psu isn't a modular one so it should have enough room for all the cables to fit behind the motherboard tray.


That's it for now, Next I would be doing some work on the motherboard tray, so see you guys tomorrow thumb.gif
I love u OCN biggrin.gif

Update Time

Rivits Done on back panel, Edges needs to be grind off



Just rough measurements for the front intake fans




Some Fails and redos well biggrin.gif



Spare metal sheets to cover the back panel



PSU Cutout


Offsetting the tray from the rear for cable management and hdds




For the motherboard tray I used side panel of the 2nd beige case :-)




Rough markings for the psu. That side panel is a history , color tells it lol


Some other rough measurements





Getting into shape smile.gif




Made some cuts to hold the backpanel shroud in place


lol at this one


For measuring the motherboard standoffs i used a spare motherboard and marked accordingly


Placing all three parts together temporarily with nuts and bols


Align the slots


Looks just fine


Double checking if the gpu fits


This seems good


Marked and drill the holes for standoffs , i realize i can't just insert them, as these are threaded , so looked so some tools to do the work. That sidepanel is way too think that i expected.mad.gif


Luckily found these thumb.gif Just perfect to thread for the standoffs biggrin.gif



Few of the standoffs in place , btw i didn't buy standoffs i grab them from the other cases i mentioned earlier


Top View for the cable management




Put some spare 120mm in place, so far its good

all of them are straight... rolleyes.gif


Now with the motherboard tray aka side panel of other case smile.gif


Since i only need 4 holes for on the tray so marked accordingly for 24pin eps and sata cables, These are actually ovals tongue.gif



Cut out for the 8pin eps


Started now with the side panel


I don't like the square cuts , so i tried cutting the edges more to circle




All Measurements done


And Done



Sorry about the crappy pics was taken from BB.

Im still thinking about the paint, it should be black or white , or maybe blue and white...or something else.. Also im planning to put 3 120 mm fans on top so any easy method how am i suppose to do that, i got the dremel from a friend of mine for couple of days , so hopefully it should be done in two days times... smile.gif
Any suggestions ?
